Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hackers pc I have a problem with all my pc´s.  not my mac.  SOMEONE is hacking into the bios and hijackikng all my pc´s.  They then disable my peripherals.  I even tried to download ubuntu, since I am tired of spending money on pc´s.  that didn´t work.  It seems to have something to do with the bios shadowing, and virtual private networks.  They are accessing my pc´s without telephone lines connected and even unplugged with no monitor.  I had a junk pc I bought for $20 That sat with no plug, monitor, keyboard because it was junk.  Somehow they changed the icon for ¨my computer¨to a trash can.  All my computers seem to be booting off a virtual machine somewhere somehow.  I managed to put ubuntu on junk pc, but when I realized it had a partiioner, of course I reformatted the hd.  That must´ve annoyed whoever, because they erased the partition manager from the installed ubuntu version, and won´t let me boot from the disk in the disk drive.  I have a mac that obviously doesn´t have a bios, but this is ticking me off royally.  How can I prevent these people from doing this?  Yes, contacted the cops.  pretty much know who it is.  what do I do to get back control over my pc´s?  No, I am not crazy.  They won´t let me reinstall the os, nor get on the internet with my pc´s.  The junk pc is an old hewlet packard that ran windows 98.  13 gig 386 intel 466 mz.  Its a desktop.

    I am a Certified Ethical Hacker, and what you are describing above is not possible. Please clarify your request.



    Based on above, you seem to be paranoid, as nobody is hacking your disconnected, powered off computer with no keyboard or monitor connected.

Not intending to encourage this paranoia theme, but do you lock your doors when you leave or gave a key to a friend who may be doing a trick? Otherwise, I would have to agree with the above. Make sure you are not downloading anything with adware, spyware, etc. Get a security software as well.
One other thought, because this is an old, old pc, the hardware could be malfunctioning, with not enoough memory or storage. Consider getting a newer desktop if you need one.

Tip

Be aware of hackers


I want to alert you all about hackers ready to hack email ids . Daily many email ids are hacked . Daily . In the same way , someone from New York hacked my Gmail account . Be aware of hackers .
To prevent hacking of your account , use the followig tips :

1. Insert your email id only in trusted website
This is to prevent hackers know your email id . It can be that the website in which you are entering your email id belongs to a hacker . If it is so , then your account password would be easily hacked . It is not that only Gmail account can be hacked . Anyone can very easily hack the password of any account , no matter it is a Gmail account or Yahoo or Hotmail or any other account . So it would be better and safe to enter your email id only on trusted websites .

2. Change your password at regular period of time
Changing the password can sometimes prevent your account from getting hacked . If a person anyhow gets your password and at that same time you can it , then the hacker would be unable to open your account . It can only happen only with some people .

3. Never neglect warnings and alerts
On Gmail , if a person with a different IP address logges in to your acount , then it shows a warning message on the empty space on the top . If any such warning message is shown , then instead of neglecting it , prform the following steps :
1. Click on the "Show info" link near the message .
2. Note down the IP address of the hacker and change the password or delete the account immediately . I reccommend you to delete the account .

4. Delete unneeded email account
If you have email accounts more than needed then delete those accounts . To see those steps , read my next tip on FixYa.com

If your account has been logged in by this IP address , then mail me to get information about it :
8.22.161.217

You can also get information about any IP address on Arin WHOIS Database Search website :

I am look to unlock my gmail password but keeps on declining


Gmail, Google's email service, provides you with a free, online email address.
Your Gmail account is vulnerable to hackers if you don't take adequate steps to protect it.

Create a strong password that contains a mix of numbers and letters.
Use both upper and lowercase, and consider adding symbols.

Change your account's settings from HTTP to HTTPS.
Even if you take the necessary precautions, someone may still hack your account.

By checking various Gmail settings, you can determine if someone has hacked your account.
Sign in to your Gmail account.

If your password doesn't work, someone has compromised your account.
If your login works, scroll to the bottom of the Gmail screen until you find the Last Account Activity line.

Click "Details."
This opens a new window with all your recent account activity.

Check the Location box for any activity outside your area or from a strange IP address.
This is a sign that someone hacked your Gmail.

Click "Sent Mail" and look for any strange messages sent from your address.
If you find messages there that you didn't send, someone may have hacked your account.

Click the gear-shaped button on the top right side of the Gmail screen.
Choose "Mail Settings" from the drop-down list.

Check the Signature box to make sure no one changed it.
Hackers sometimes place links to malicious websites in this area.

If you send an email to someone and he unknowingly clicks one of these links, it can infect his computer.

Check the Vacation Responder section for a similar reason. Make sure no one has changed it or placed outgoing links.

Click the "Accounts and Import" tab at the top of the Settings page.
Click "Change Password Recovery Options" in the Change Account Settings section.

Enter your password if Gmail prompts you.
Check the Email section to make sure there are no strange addresses listed as a recovery email address.

If a hacker places one of his email addresses in this section, he can recover your password even after you've changed it.

While on this page, check your security questions to make sure no one changed them.
Close the "Recovering Your Password" page and return to your Gmail Settings page.

Check the "Grant Access to Your Account" section.
Unless you've added an account here, it should be empty.

If someone hacked your Gmail, you may find that he has added himself to your account in this section.
This means he can read your email and send messages from your address.

Click the "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" tab.
Check the Forwarding section to make sure no one changed it.

Check the POP Download section and the IMAP Access section.
Unless you enabled them in the past, POP and IMAP should be disabled.

Hackers use these options to gain access to your messages.
Click "Save Changes" if you altered any settings.

My email and all other services on yahoo do not open on my computer but do open on other computers. What could possibly be wrong with my computer?


Now more is known about computers, hacking into them can in some cases become a lot easier if someone does not have the correct firewalls and protection. There are now many ways that people can hack into other people's computers. This can either be by using your wireless internet service to then gain access to your 'C' drive, hacking into your password-protected systems and files, or simply sending you an email with a dangerous attachment for you to open, providing them with unauthorised access to your whole computer.

It is for these reasons why you should ensure that you invest in the correct firewalls, virus protection and security-enabled wireless Internet services. If someone is successful in hacking into someone else's computer, they will be able to access their bank accounts and all personal documents that could include both private and important information about their jobs or contact details.

The key is to outsmart the hacker. Include symbols and numbers in your password as opposed to just using words that can be guessed if the hacker is persistent enough. Making sure that you don't open any emails that look suspicious and give you false promises is going to ensure that your computer isn't going to get hacked into. They will have access to you e-mail and possibly computer if you do this.

Being aware of how people hack into other people's computers is going to ensure that you do not become a victim to whichever method the hacker tries to gain access to your home or work computer. Be ahead of the game with firewalls and extra protection with difficult passwords. Investing time into being vigilant could prevent your life savings and credit cards from being jeopardised unnecessarily.

How to enable facebook


The hacker messed up your account. They probably posted rude comments and sent rude mail or something to get banned. Being disabled means getting banned. Sorry but you will have to contact their support team and they can reply fast or take a while. Maybe start a new account.

Someone is hacking in my sons ebox


i recommend you contact Microsoft support for assistance. The problem here is that the hacker responsible likely has somehow acquired user login information. I hope Microsoft can provide support for you since dealing with hackers in any respect is tricky business.

Anti-hacking code


Hi noxiney,
Most hackers gain access to others computer through open ports, this way a hacker can't be detected by any antivirus or firewall software. While the hacker is undercover inside your computer theres almost nothing you can do, because you think theres no problem with your PC. Also consider that hackers are experts when covering their tracks, this would make difficult to know from where this intruder comes.
The anti-hacking code would have to track the hackers Ip address and then hack the hacker's PC and trigger the shutdown routine. Let's say that the anti-hacking code can track the hacker's real Ip (which is very difficult considering that the hacker is covering his tracks and showing fake Ip), when the code reaches the hacker's PC it has to get inside and order the operating system to shut down (in less words, hack the hacker).
This is a very difficult thing to make and demands high knowledge not only of the TCP and UDP protocol but knowledge of the other's computer.
Concluding, it is possible to program many softwares that one can use to gather information about the intruder's PC and manage a way to shut down the hacker's PC before he/she shuts down yours. It does not exists a code which automatically shuts down a hacker's PC.
